Conrad Black’s New Book – Hugh Hewitt Interview Part 1

This is a good first part (11 minutes) of a longer interview with Conrad Black on his new book, Donald J Trump, A President Like No Other. This one covers President Trump in his earlier years before becoming president. Black actually had dealings with Trump with a 98 story building in Chicago. Trump came right on schedule and within budget. Black also admired Trump’s handling of aldermen and union graft and bullying by his just treating them as part of the process.

Black says about Trump’s handling of the building project: “It was a formidable thing to see. It was a first-class, professional operation he ran. And he could not have delivered more completely on his promises.”... [Read More]

Judicial Watch interviews Gommert about Mueller

So this interview is very revealing of how slimy Mueller is now and has been for a lot of his career. I had no idea that under his “guidance,” various FBI agents framed the Boston  mob that was in opposition to Whitey Bulger’s mob operation.

Also I didn’t know that as the FBI director, Mueller was the guy who tried to frame an innocent man for the anthrax attacks that took place during the period right after Nine Eleven. The eventual lawsuit cost the government millions of dollars.... [Read More]

A See I Told You So

When I was a regular at that other site, I found myself caught up in what became the tail end of the great “Gay Marriage Wars.” I can recall those exchanges getting heated. I can also recall members of that other site saying certain things that were happening in places like Canada or Europe would never happen here. One such comment was leveled at my assertion that, after homosexual marriage were made legal, Christians seeking to adopt children would be made to either ensure that the children were not told of the religious doctrine about homosexuality or those parents would be prohibited from adoption. Well, guess what? I told you so.

I would love to be able to go on that other site and make sure that the person who lambasted me for making such a prediction saw this story because he was so devastatingly wrong. The only conclusion to homosexual becoming “legal” through the court system–the way it in fact happened here in the United States–was for the once Constitutionally guaranteed rights of Christians to be curtailed or outright denied....

Who is surprised by this? Raise their hands.

Trump announced Thursday that he was canceling the June 12 summit in Singapore with Kim following hostile comments. Overnight, Kim’s government threatened nuclear confrontation and called Vice President Mike Pence a “political dummy.”

“Rocket Man” has just dug his own grave and I hope we continue to sanction the hell out of that country. Regret the innocent lives that will continue to be lost, but China and the Kims need to take full responsibility for that.... [Read More]

Presidential Libraries: Locations and Ephemera

I’ve had the opportunity to visit several Presidential libraries, homes and historic places.  Most of the ones I have visited are centered around a home. Visiting Spiegel Grove, Rutherford B. Hayes’s home in Fremont, Ohio, is a quiet affair…a lovely home, a library for research, his final resting place.  Mount Vernon, the magnificent home and final resting place of George Washington, has a sprawling museum and estate and has been lovingly cared for by the Mount Vernon Ladies Association since the 1850s.  Other homes include those of Harry S. Truman, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and FDR.

Some Presidential libraries lack a home, but have outstanding museums and artifacts.  The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, IL tends toward the Disney-esque, with life-size dioramas and high-tech holographics along with a rotating display of artifacts in a more traditional portion of the museum.  The outstanding Library is across the street from the museum; Lincoln’s home, operated by the National Park Service, is across town and his tomb is also nearby....

Today’s Kipling – King Henry VII and the Shipwrights

(Since I quoted part of it in a comment, I thought I ought to put in the whole thing.)

King Henry VII and the Shipwrights

Rudyard Kipling

HARRY, our King in England, from London town is gone
And comen to Hamull on the Hoke in the Countie of Suthampton.
For there lay the Mary of the Tower, his ship of war so strong,
And he would discover, certaynely, if his shipwrights did him wrong.... [Read More]

FBI v Russian hackers

In other words, average consumers have the ability to stop Russia’s latest cyber attack by rebooting their routers, which will now reach out to the FBI instead of Russian intelligence. According to the court filings, the FBI is collecting the Internet IP addresses of every compromised router that phones home to the address, so agents can use the information to clean up the global infection.

The paragraph above is from an article about the FBI seizing control of a server for a Russian malware botnet.... [Read More]

The Broken Feedback Loop

I could have titled this “Listening” but that would have been boring.

In life, there needs to be a feedback loop. This tells people whether they are on the right track or the wrong track. It is rare that one person can be so self aware to be their own feedback loop. They need the responses from others.... [Read More]
